Lewis Hamilton, interviewed on Sky Sports UK, talked about the mistake that made him finish in last place the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, the sixth round of the Formula 1 season. The British driver was the protagonist of a bad mistake that made him go straight to turn 1 and finish at the back of the pack.
He said: "I hit a wrong switch on turn 1, so I went straight. I'm very sorry for the boys and girls on the team. I had no idea I even hit the switch. Of course it's a pretty humiliating experience. worked hard to get back into the top ten and put everything on the line but in the end I lost."
Horner attacks Lewis Hamilton: "His mind games are garbage"
Team principal Red Bull Max Horner attacked the British driver after Lewis Hamilton's statements against Max Verstappen. Mercedes star, at the press conference, said he was the only one to make a serious commitment to avoid contact with Verstappen, while the Dutchman would be much more aggressive because he would have much more to prove.
He said: "Lewis Hamilton loves all that junk, his mind games. You have to ignore him, go ahead. If he feels the need to make these statements, it means that Max is getting under his skin. It's fantastic and it's part of the sport.
Look at it. the endplate or the front wing flap. You can see how it starts to disappear from the frame and then reappears. So what's the difference between the front and the rear? We will have to make some changes for the next test and that costs time and money, but we are not the only team to do it.
Probably a greater burden for those like Alfa Romeo, who are already at the limit. Ferrari has had a good pace in the last two races. It is very fast and certainly in PL2 They were very fast. Leclerc and Sainz are up there, at the top of the standings, and their car seems well balanced, so they had a great session: congratulations.
As for us, however, if we put the lap together we will be there at the top. For Checo it is ta a good morning, but in general there was a lot of traffic. I'm sure everyone is complaining about it, not just Max, who found him just when he had to make the time and so he couldn't.
I think we have lost the best of the tire window and also have a little too much understeer on Max's car, according to him. So I think it's just a matter of tuning and avoiding traffic, we shouldn't be far from the top."
